Conor’s story

I decided to take on the challenge of running my first marathon partly for personal achievement, but also to help Bridges to Belarus, after hearing about their life-changing work.

I'm used to running much shorter distances (10K and a few half-marathons), so it is going to be a huge physical and mental challenge to train for the full marathon in the coming months. Dublin is a city I know well, having lived there for 6 years for university, and I'm looking forward to going back there for the event next October.

I will post updates about how training is coming along, and about other fundraising events I organise in the meantime to support the cause.

All donations go directly to the charity, and I will be paying all my own expenses for event entry, travel and accommodation, etc. Bridges to Belarus is a UK registered charity (number 1109946), run entirely by volunteers in the UK and Belarus.

All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.


Bridges to Belarus

Bridges to Belarus is a small, UK based charity that helps children and families in Belarus who are affected by the Chernobyl disaster. The people of the region have health issues related to the disaster but are also affected by extreme poverty. All our people are volunteers, which allows us to spend all money raised in supporting our families.

Registered Charity Number: 1109946.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
